2. Stripping a '90 Plymouth Laser Turbo FWD

Bought the engine donor from ebay for $1000 before I realized I would end up making the Colt project AWD. I drove this car home and the ECU fried the next day, but the engine was in great shape. PA car, very rusty, this one took 4 hours because I took a dinner break.

5. 4g63 Teardown II
Disassembling the shortblock and reconditioning of the Colt's "new" engine.





7. Removing the Colt's old rear end assembly
There is no engineering problem that time and money can't fix. Changing a FWD econo-box into an AWD sleeper. Removing the 4-lug hubs, drum brakes, rear hubs, crossbars, springs, trunk, gas tank, etc...





300 Hp Plymouth Laser RS Turbo AWD WOT Pull
1st, 2n and 3rd Gear Pull. Backed off a bit on 3rd gear bc ran out of roads.





3. Stripping a AWD Eagle Talon
This car was given to me in trade for fixing someone's car. It had a trashed head and good shortblock, but I wanted the drivetrain. I needed everything. I took it all. I had a spare head and could have just fixed it, but the Colt said "no".





6. 4g63 longblock assembly
All parts ordered and accounted for. Bagged, tagged and marked with torque specs. Assembly took 2.5 hours... but the 14 hours of prep work, 2 weeks in a machine shop, and wrong-parts-delivered fiascoes straightened out prior to assembly.





4. Tearing down a '90 Turbo 4g63 engine
Decided to rebuild the engine to leave nothing in question.





Block Preparation Part 2 - 1gina2g Timing Side
RRE Method: http://www.roadraceengineering.com/2g6boltmotorinstall.htm Magnus Method: http://magnusmotorsports.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/02/1gina2g.pdf Technically, I'm doing the Magnus method, but my wiring will be very different. All 1g cars use the same water pump, and naturally they use the same water pump bolts as well. I use the 1g tensioner arm because it clears the water pump without any grinding of either one of those parts. 1g Water Pump MD972052 1g Water Pump Bolts MF140022 MF140026 MF140028 MF140029 MF140238 1g Timing Tensioner Arm MD130032 This 2g timing mount assembly includes a tensioner arm, washer, pivot bolt, idler pulley and bolt.. You won't need the included tensioner arm with my method. It doesn't come with the studs on the top, so you'd need to buy a pair of those. Complete 2g Timing Mount Assembly MD189172 Engine Mount Studs MD184155 x2 Depending on whether you're installing a 1g 6-bolt or a 1g 7-bolt engine block in your 2g chassis, you're going to need the front case and hydraulic tensioner that matches the block you're using. Front Case Assemblies MD129347 (6-bolt straight cut gears) MD175762 (6-bolt helical cut gears) MD327450 (7-bolt helical for 1g block) 1g Hydraulic Tensioner MD164533 6-bolt MD308586 7-bolt 1g Hydraulic Tensioner Bolts MD129350 x2 6-bolt MD190987 x2 7-bolt You can modify a 2g lower timing cover to make it fit, but it won't line up around the bottom of the front case. That's why I use the 1g timing cover, and modify it to fit the 2g middle cover. Since you need metal covers against the block to have something to bolt the plastic parts to, let's start with those. The rear metal cover that bolts to the head is exactly the same part for both 1g and 2g cars. With my method, you need to use the 2g front metal cover in order to line up with the 2g middle plastic cover. So all of the plates that bolt to my swap are from a 2g. 1g2g Timing Middle Cover, Rear (metal) MD127142 2g Timing Middle Cover, Front (metal) MD187283 2g Timing Lower Cover, Rear (metal) MD199941 For the plastic part of the covers, my method dictates that you use the 1g lower timing cover assembly. This lines up all of the bolt holes and makes it fit around the bottom of the front case where the oil pan is. If you modify the lower cover to fit with the middle 2g cover, you won't need to trim anything else. The upper timing cover you need may depend on which head and valve cover you're using. Lower Timing Cover Assembly MD141454 1g 6-bolt block MD193995 1g 7-bolt block 2g Middle Timing Cover Assembly MD191811 - 9401.1-9606.3 MD191807 - 9607.1-9912.9 Upper Timing Cover WITH Rubber Gaskets 1g - MD141457 6-bolt head 1g - MD188127 7-bolt head 2g - MD198031 This is a good place to transition into the rubber parts because the rubber pieces are very different for the 1g and 2g upper timing covers. If you don't want a rattling, buzzing, noisy valve cover sounding off with every vibration from your car, you should replace all of the rubber. It dry rots and turns hard. If you bought a complete 1g engine gasket set and you have both timing covers already, then you should have the 1g portion of these rubber gaskets included in your gasket set. If you've already got both generations of the timing covers like I do, and no good rubber gaskets, then order all of these parts and stop the rattles. However, if you bought any of the plastic timing cover parts new from the dealer, then those plastic parts come with the rubber gaskets included. You can eliminate them from your order. MD006665 1g* MD156770 1g* MD188122 2g MD188831 2g MD191502 2g * If you bought a complete 1g plastic lower timing cover, you don't need the 1g gaskets. Upper Timing Cover Gaskets by themselves... 1g - MD031235 & MD122058 6-bolt head 1g - MD188123 & MD188124 7-bolt head 2g - MD188122 Now for the last part. Fasteners. These are all of the upper, middle and lower timing cover bolts whether they bolt down metal or plastic parts. I've included their lengths and diameters so you can identify them.

Porting wastegate / flapper garrett t3
This is a work on a t3 garret. the point is to enlarge the flapper hole of the wastegate flapper and increase the opening angle of this flapper to allow more gas flow. This mod help to counter the Boost creep or the runaway of the turbine and the adverse consequences on the turbo and the "breathing" of a stock turbo working at higher pressure that it was originally made for.
